ABSTRACT

The PAL USER TOOLKIT is a collection of tools to support the user
of PAL.  This tree includes binaries for MSDOS, MAC, and VMS as well
as source code.

This collection was assembled by Richard Conn.

This collection contains tools that can help the user of the PAL
manipulate the files in the PAL.  These tools include:
   various versions of tar (the UNIX tape archiver) for several
     platforms
   various versions of compress (the UNIX file compression program)
     for several platforms
   various versions of GNU ZIP (the GNU file compression program)
     for several platforms
   various versions of UUENCODE and UUDECODE (the UNIX binary-to-text
     and text-to-binary file conversion programs)
   various versions of ZIP and UNZIP by the Info-ZIP group (Info-ZIP
     provides a very good ZIP and UNZIP file/directory archive and
     compression tool that runs on virtually every platform) for
     several platforms
   the pager2 program (which concatenates and tears apart text files)
   the t2t (text-to-text), u2m (UNIX to MSDOS), and m2u (MSDOS to UNIX)
     text file format conversion programs

Source code to many of these programs is included so they may be
ported to other platforms as the user desires.  The "all" directory
tree contains many such items.

The files in the PAL with the following file types require the
indicated programs to access their contents:

   File Type     Required Programs
   =========     =================
   htm           HyperText Markup language used by Mosaic
   src           text files created by pager2; pager2 is used to
                   extract the component files (a normal text editor
                   may also be used, but pager2 is more convenient)
   tar           tar files created by tar; tar is used to extract
                   the component files
   taz           tar and compress (run compress first and then
                   untar the resulting file with tar)
   tgz           tar and GNU ZIP (run GNU UNZIP first and then
                   untar the resulting file with tar)
   Z             compressed files created by compress; uncompress
                   is used to restore the files to their original
                   uncompressed form
   z             compressed files created by gzip; gunzip is used
                   to restore the files to their original uncompressed
                   form
   zip           Info-ZIP's zip and unzip (there may be one or
                   two exceptions requiring some proprietary
                   zip program, like PK Zip)

Each tool in the PAL toolkit has either an associated abstract
(*.abs) or README file.  These files contain author information
and some user instructions.  They should be read before the
user employs the tool.

With Version 1.3 of the toolkit, Mosaic has been added.  The version
of Mosaic in the win_31 tree includes a socket driver for standalone
execution of Mosaic under Microsoft Windows 3.1 without a network.
